Do you ever notice when you are up against something really big you start to feel really uncomfortable; that is where I am at. I have so many big dreams and goals sometimes I find myself doubting and getting nervous. However, I know deep down to my toes God has provided me with everything I need to see my dreams through. The biggest challenge is to ditch the Self-Doubt.
Who out there ever experiences self-doubt? If we let it, it could be a cancer that keeps us far away from our dreams. It could be that one thing that always makes our lives a little more difficult than it needs to be...or it could be that final push that sends us over the edge. Either way it occurs for you and me it will strip us from our self-confidence.
When we lose our self-confidence our whole life becomes dark and scary. We tend to lock ourselves up in our homes and try not to be noticed. We tend to hide in a crowd, maybe the back of a room or even worse we become invisible to the world. When we let go of our self-confidence we slowly lose everything that is important to us. It is so sad but this is what happens. I know because I have gone through it myself. I allowed self-doubt to kill my dreams more than once. I have allowed what people think of me or tell me I am not good enough to cause self-doubt.
I'll tell you, when I finally looked in the mirror and I did not like what I had become; through hard work I changed my life around. My life may not be perfect in other people's eyes...but I'll tell you in my own eyes that really matter my life is perfect. I am doing what I have always wanted. I am changing lives on person at a time. Soon I will be changing lives 1000's at a time. Every day my self-confidence gets stronger and stronger without fail. When the self-doubt does rear its ugly head, my self-confidence squashes it like a bug.
I have built my confidence so strong that it is hard to tear me down....I may get a little tired or stressed; but I always find something amazing about me that allows my confidence to squash the invader. You have the same abilities; you just need to dig in deep inside yourself and pull out that extraordinary person. You will then allow your confidence to get stronger and stronger as well.
There is nothing more beautiful to me than a Confident WOMAN and a Confident MAN. We all have the ability to tune out the people who try to tear us down and listen to our own selves. We all have our own life to live. What's good for one is not good for us. We have our own journey to walk!!! Until we meet again....
With all my love...Rita
